As a bulk material handling professional, you’re familiar with the challenges  wear liners can pose. For optimal function, the conveyor liner should be inside the skirtboard and wear liner system; this protects the sealing system and chute work from the attrition of material loading and throughput. However, getting into the skirtboard system can require confined entry to install, inspect, adjust or replace the wear liner, which is typically difficult.

Attempts at solutions along the way have included placing the wear liner outside of the skirtboard. This, however, often only invites additional setbacks such as exposed chute walls and lodging of material between the chute wall and the liner.

Benetech understands what you were up against, and in response, we engineered a safer, more efficient solution for a conveyor liner that better protects your system while allowing for easy access.

Our MaxZone XN Wear Liner is placed in the conventional position inside the skirtboard but you can adjust it from the outside – no more need to climb in. Wear liner replacements, adjustments and maintenance are now simple and quick. Simply loosen the liner bolts, turn the cams to meet the desired height and then re-tighten the bolts.

The impact on performance is instant. The XN Wear Liner reduces premature wear and erosion of skirt rubber while better sealing your system, increases the life of usable steel or chrome, and eliminates the need to cut or weld the liner.

Benetech also planned ahead to ensure your conveyor liner solution is versatile. Frictional and abrasive properties vary among bulk materials, so we offer different liner types to suit the type of material you are handling.

Our XN Wear Liners are available in straight or deflector style with a standard thickness of one-half inch. Custom lengths and thicknesses also are available, as are plates with factory-welded mounting studs for ease of installation. XN Wear Liner material options include AR 400, ceramic, UHMW, chromium carbide and stainless steel.

If your conveyor liner has been requiring extra maintenance or interrupting production, we’re ready to help you solve your issue today. Contact us at (630) 844-1300 to further discuss the XN Wear Liner with a Benetech specialist.
